Chelsea Peretti Announces Departure from Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Chelsea Peretti, who portrays Gina Linetti on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, has announced she is leaving the show. But not forever.

Peretti announced on Twitter Wednesday that her character would depart the show sometime during season 6, the upcoming season of the now NBC show.

Although Peretti’s Gina was hit by a bus during season 4 and was absent for a significant amount of season 5 because of her pregnancy, it seems that this exit might be for much longer than that. Peretti, however, did not rule out returning to the show in the future.

B99 co-creator Dan Goor also tweeted out a statement:

Several cast members, including Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, and Joel McKinnon Miller, tweeted Peretti about their support and shared their favorite moments with her. Although the cast has been together for over 100 episodes, their love and admiration of each other helped fans cope with Peretti’s departure from the show.


The 6th season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine is currently filming and is set to air sometime in the winter. According to Goor, fans can expect more socially-conscious episodes including a #MeToo episode during the new season.
